An effort is being made to have November 19 declared Thanksgiving day
because it is the 50th anniversary of President LincolnJs Gettysburg speech.
I Jt should not be done. It has been the custom for a century or more to have
Thanksgiving day the last Thursday in November, and there is no reason for
making an exception this year. No day or change of days win add to or de
tract from Lincoln's immortal speech. It will live as long as the language is
used and it needs no celebration of the day to make it immortal.
Advertising rates will be furnished on application.

A DISPATCH from Berlin, Gormany Wednesday, says that tlio eugenic idea
is about to bo carried out to its legitimate result. There is to be estab
lished at Jena, if the scheme is perfected, a colony for brooding aristo
crats of the raco, physical and mental giants. In this colony each man,
if he is haudsonie and mentally a genius, may have ten wives. He will
not have them all at ono timo, but will have 0110 for one or at tho most two
years, or until she bears a child by him, when ho will bo entitled to a fresh
ono. Tho Bocioty holds that the only way to keep tho raco from detorioratiug
is to breed it up, and acting on this thtory it will start a stock farm along
the lines bb stated, that is if there aro 110 legal impediments. This farm iB to
be stocked with tho very best men and by tho process of selection tho raco is
eventually to bo built up.
Just how tho Block is to bo improved is ono of tho things that is not ex
plained. Stock can be improved this way by killing off tho scrubs and work
ing up to grades and finally to the pure brods, but it must bo remembered that
the scrubs muni, be gotten rid of. If th'oy aro allowed to increnso and multiply
then the fine-haired and flossy stock cannot bo substituted. Then each woman
is to be physically and mentally perfect, and is to turn her wholo attention to
bearing children. Experience teaches that this is the first thing tho perfect
nnd beautiful woman will not do. It spoils her shape, and that ia of vastly
moro importance to tho handsome woman than all tho raco problems thnt wore
over undertaken to bo solved.
Tho proposition is so utterly silly that wo should not notico it wore it not
for calling attention to tho extremes that a real faddist will go onco ho or sho
mounts tho favorito hobby. We called attention some timo ago to tho fact that
this very thing was tho legitimate result of tho eugenic idea. That tho only
way to improve tho race would bo by selection of sires and dams, mid wo
pointed out that this would never bo seriously contemplated. That is where wo
failed t4reali.o tho extent to which a dninphool would rido his hobby, if given
liberty to rido at all.
Thoro is another phoso to tho mntter and that is that tho perfect man phy
sically is a freak. Ho may have had parents far below tho average physically,
and it is certain that there is now no man or set of men that could bo depended
011 to become fathers of tho same type. In other words, the breud is not fixed.
There aro no 1'enheron or Clydesdale men. There are no Hcrcfords or Jersey
types. There lire no Plymouth Hocks or Wyandotte. There is in fact nothing
but scrubs whose offspring would not be true to type, except the scrub type.
SOME SCHOOL BOARD WISDOM.
THK 1IOAKO OP EDUCATION of New York City, after months of wrang
ling, has finally decided Hint a woman teachor may still hold her posi
tion after marriage. Hut it also holds that sho must not havo children,
for in that case sho will forfeit her position. This, it strikes us, is not
in accordance with tho eternal fitness of things. Hero is a board hold
ing that if a woman engaged in teaching other people's children should hnvo n
child of her own sho thon becomes incapable of teaching. More than that the
board deliberately penalizes motherhood. The matter came up over tlio caso
of Mrs. Piexotto, a teacher in charge of public school No. 1-1, tlio Bronx, who
absented herself from her classes February 3 and remained absent until sus
pended, April 22, she having given birth to a child April 7. A few days ago
idle was dismissed by a vote of 2 to 3,
The technical charge agninst her was thnt sho had been absent from her
(lntiin without leave. Members of the board admitted that had sho been suf
fering from typhoid fever, hurt in a joyrido, or for any other reasonable cause
she had been absent, her nbsenco would havo been excused, but tho bearing of
a child merited and caused dismissal.
It strikes us that if the bearing of children is nil offense against tho school
laws, and causes dismissal, then tho board should in tho Interest of tho nice
draw the lino at teachers marrying. It should make that tho reason for dismis
sal, and not the hearing of children. It should not put a premium on crime,
and place a temptation to prenatal child-murder in tho way of tho teacher who
unfortunately saw fit to marry. It is evident tho school board of New York
City in dead ripe for the recall.
HF.UK IS AN OPINION' on Suffrage Aristocracy and several other things,
an it is expressed in the laily Ontarian, a Canadian iiowspaer:
"The republics of the world have most to fear when women aro r
mittisl the privileges of tho ballot box, because every woman at heart is
an aristocrat, inure or less. Men, usually, nro not nearly so exacting In
their social attitude towards oilier ineii, as the fcniiuines aro toward both men
and women, Perhaps It would be safer to say that women are more aesthetic
Ui 11 11 aristocratic, There is little use In sneering nt a certain social superior
ity. When the assumption of a social superiority is said to be implied. There
lies the social blunder. Such offenders are the people who are unskilled in
tho subtleties and refilled secrets of conversation that never Irritates. Living
with such people is like living in a stuffy room with only hi,h hocked chairs.
These are the people who are forever wanting yon to sit up straight, nnd listen
to Improving conversation, whereas you want to lounge lniMrlally by an open
window and give way occasionally to a rng time slnnginess. Pride of birth Is

Rosoburg Review: It is pleasing to
note tho number of families that have
come to Roscburg to locate during the

be gifted to predict that many more

short time. Coming from the south tho
homeseeker cannot but note tho change

nia to tho emerald pastures of Oregon.
"With the grass and the flowers
flourishing ns in May, and the birds
singing as gnyly ns in early summer,"
exclaims the Mackburg correspondent
of tho Canby Irrigator, "it would be
hard to believe that autumn had really
come, were it not thnt tho fall fmit is
growing ripe; thnt tho grnin fields are
in a state of preparation for the next
year's crop, nnd the schools aro well
started on their winter's work."
